An Altered State of Mind!

Here's a tin I altered for my last hostess. It's a little bit bigger than the normal ones. Somethin' like 8 x 8. Jennifer is always decorating and redecorating her house, (I'm not talking about just changing the paint color, I'm talking about knocking walls out, then maybe putting them back in a year or so.) major stuff with the help of her husband of course, and they are really good at it too! But I was trying to come up with something she could keep ideas, color charts, material swatches, and other stuff in.

I used Tall Tales DSP and Old Olive DSP to cover the tin. Added some flowers cut with the BS and the 3 flower punch. Also Made some tags with the Define Your Life Stamp Set. Used the Soft Suede Ribbon and some Linen Thread. Of course we had to make it look old and dirty!
She loved the little tags I made! and of course I had to sponge all the edges to make it look old and dirty.
Inside the tin. I cut regular size folders down to fit and sponged them too!
Here's what one of the folders looked like! I used the Flowers Decorative Strip and Big Shot. I Really liked how they turned out! Hope you enjoyed your visit today. I'm thinking about maybe starting another blog or changing the name of this one to an "Altered State of Mind", Seems to be where my focus is lately. Hey, have a great day and come back and check in on me soon!
